You guys will all be asleep in your seats by the third inning...

My prediction for the nightcap (no not THAT nightcap):

Twins 18, Tigers 5.

I know that's going out on a limb :)

That's the first game. Plouffe and Arcia and Suzuki are in the nightcap.

Hopefully the Twins keep doing what they have been the last 24 hours. 
My prediction: Twins 7 Tigers 3.

May goes 7 IP 2 ER 6K 1BB for his first win.

Aaron Hicks 2017 stats so far (5/17/17): .326 BA .464 OBP .616 SLG 1.080 OPS  7 HR 19 RBI 6 SB 22 BBs 1.8WAR

A lost scene from "The Rifleman"...

 

Lucas McCain: "Get your chores done, Mark. The Twins are going to start any minute now."

 

Mark: "That's great, Pa! First I want to read Twins Daily. That Riverbrian and ChiTown are sure humorous, I must say."

 

Lucas: "That they are. But they're not doing their normal pregame commentary today. I hear both had too much fun last night down at the saloon in North Fork with the Mods Club."

 

Mark: "Goodness. It won't seem like a Twins game without their lively banter."

 

Lucas: "Banter? Is that a new word you learned from that pretty little Sue Ostegaard girl next ranch over?"

 

Mark: (embarrassed) "Well, yeah, Pa. And she did want to meet me in the barn before the game to see her etchings. What does that mean, Pa?"

 

Lucas: "Darned if I know, son. Wish your mother was alive. Oh! On your way to the barn, don't trip over the dead Mexican I shot earlier today. Hurry up now. I don't want you to miss Santana's first AB."

 

Mark: "Sure thing, Pa!"

I am trusting the moderators at the game are not going to do anything that will reflect poorly on TD and damage its reputation as the premier site for sophisticated baseball analysis in a dignified professional environment.

Don't do anything foolish! Ya' know, like expecting the Twins to score 5 or more runs, or counting on RB to make sense!
